UNPO commemorative publication celebrates 20 years of promoting nonviolence, human rights and self-determination

The following is an excerpt from this publication:

On 11 February 1991, representatives of 15 nations and peoples1 came together at the seat of international law, the Peace Palace in The Hague, with a revolutionary idea. Representing occupied nations, indigenous peoples, minorities and other vulnerable or disenfranchised populations, their aim was to create an international forum where unrepresented nations and peoples could air their legitimate grievances. In pursuit of peace for their peoples and respect for human rights, these representatives joined together on the steps of the International Court of Justice in a pact for world peace.  The result of this meeting was the establishment of the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO), a body whose existence is as crucial today as it was twenty years ago.

Published on the occasion of UNPO’s 20th anniversary, this exciting booklet details both the past and present of the organization. The publication, which includes messages from many important UNPO founders and leaders, details UNPO’s history while also describing the organization’s current work as well as the challenges it faces in the current global context.
